About Medford
map
Medford Massachusetts was settled in 1695 and became a city in 1892. The economic history was based on the ship building trade in colonial times. Ship building was begun by Thatcher Magoun who used lumber harvested from the Fells and New Hampshire which arrived via the Middlesex Canal.

After the ship building industry reached its decline printed cloth and carpets, linseed oil as well as rum and hats became the major products in Medford as did education with the founding of Tufts University in 1852. Because of its industrial prosperity Medford doubled its population every 20 years from 1870 to 1910.

To this day Medford is a well populated city in a very convenient location filled with many suburban neighborhoods. However it still retains a rich architectural heritage containing many historic sites which include monuments and houses-some of which date back the 17th century.

LINGOs Community Meet Up – Boston Area
LINGOs is all about community and collaboration to ensure that individuals and organizations within the development, humanitarian and sustainability sectors have the right learning in the right place at the right time.  We’re actively engaging our community in a series of formal and informal listening events, and as you can see on a recent post on the LINGOs Blog, members have requested more frequent opportunities for smaller groups to have more focused dialogue and more opportunities to build local relationships.  Our members in cities with a core group of members have found the local community building to be a great resource in accelerating innovation and community building to provide learning and development opportunities for their staff and stakeholders.    The purpose of the meeting is to strengthen the Boston area international development/ humanitarian relief focused learning and development community and to connect LINGOs member and potential member colleagues working on internal organizational learning and development and programmatic capacity building.   Provisional Agenda 3:00 – 3:15   Introductions 3:15 – 4:00   Sharing of learning strategies and challenges and how the LINGOs community can help 4:00 – 4:45  Group Exercise: What can we do together to meet those priorities, Marian Abernathy, LINGOs 4:45 – 5:00  Wrap

Future of Urmia Lake Workshop
Future of Urmia Lake: An exploration of a cross-disciplinary approach Urmia Lake is the largest inland lake in Iran and one of the largest saline lakes in the world. The lake basin registered as an UNESCO Biosphere Reserve because it is one of the most influential and valuable aquatic ecosystems in the country. The lake basin, as a socio-ecological region, faced extreme water shortages in the recent years due to water overuse and climate change. The lake’s surface water levels are below the critical level and groundwater level in parts of the basin have decreased by up to 16 meters. The lake requires a minimum inflow of 3.1 billion cubic meters per year to compensate for evaporation; reduced lake levels increases the occurrence of salty dust that causes respiratory health problems for people and agricultural challenges when its settles on nearby cropland. Currently, local and national organizations including multiple government and non-governmental groups are working to maintain the lake’s condition. However, there is no consensus among the stakeholders with regard to the water allocation mechanism. The main issue is that cutting water from one section for the benefit of others is so difficult. An effective way to address these types of complex water allocation problems is to reframe them as joint decision-making problems. From identifying and defining the problem to innovating and implementing mutual gains options for resolutions, these tasks can generate politically legitimate policies and projects based on science with active participation of all involved parties. The Water Diplomacy Framework (WDF) is emerging as an alternative to traditional technology- or values-focused approach to water management (Islam and Susskind 2013). The WDF diagnoses water problems, identifies intervention points, and proposes sustainable resolutions that are sensitive to diverse viewpoints and uncertainty as well as changing and competing demands. To explore these issues, Tufts University Water Diplomacy Program is organizing a workshop with the help of MIT to focus on the Urmia Lake case study. The event will be attended by several experts from Iran, and will attempt to answer these questions: -          What is the “bottleneck” in water allocation in Urmia Lake Basin? -          How can the water be reallocated from agricultural for the benefit of the environment? -          How to compensate the farmers regarding for their water rights? -          What are job creation opportunities for the farmers in this region? At the end of the event a technical report will be compiled and presented to those working on Urmia Lake restoration. Schedule July 2, 2015, Day 1: Tufts University, Medford, MA 8:30 Registration 9:00 - 13:00 Topic One: Challenges of Urmia Lake 13:00 - 14:00 Lunch 14:00 - 16:00 Topic Two: Solutions July 3, 2015, Day 2: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 8:30 Registration 9:00 - 13:00 Topic Three: Socio-economic Impacts and Challenges of Urmia Lake Restoration Plans
